There are a lot of important factors to consider before betting on the Ranvet Stakes. Make sure you have a read on below before you place your bets:
Is Previous Ranvet Stakes Form a Good Indicator of Future Success?
There would be few races in the country that boast such a prestigious honour roll as the Ranvet Stakes. Hardly a decade has passed in the race’s long and rich history where it hasn’t thrown up one of the absolute stars of the turf for that era.
The first half of last century produced names such as Nightmarch, Peter Pan, and Bernborough whilst the back half of the century includes Tulloch, Gunsynd and Super Impose. And the 2000’s kicked off with back to back wins by champion Tie the Knot, and later on iron horses Grand Armee and Desert War through to 2021 winner Verry Elleegant.
All came to the race well credentialed and picked off this Group 1 feature on the way to achieving even greater success.
Should I Bet On The Favourite in the Ranvet Stakes?
With well exposed weight for age form lines to work off, punters generally get it right in the Ranvet Stakes. This has never been more evident than in the last 17 seasons with 10 favourites saluting in this time.
Formlines from Lead Up Races
Punters should look to races like the Chipping Norton Stakes, the Sky High Stakes and the Ajax Stakes in Sydney for strong lead up runs, whilst many horses will compete in the Ranvet Stakes on the 7 day backup coming up from Melbourne after the Australian Cup.
Being an open race run under weight for age conditions, the winners tend to come from the pool of the top echelon of older middle distance horses. Montefilia won the race in 2022, as a 4YO.
The race is run under weight for age conditions.
The girls have only managed to win three times in the last 11 years and one of those was super mare Verry Elleegant suggesting the boys have a pretty good stranglehold on the race.

Well before the Ranvet Stakes field is announced – lots of bookmakers will open early markets, or all-in markets, for Ranvet Stakes betting. Many believe that this is the ideal time to bet on your horse, this is because you might be able to get really good odds on your choice.
Once the bookies release their 2022 Ranvet Stakes odds, they will tend to fluctuate each day and this is due to a couple of different reasons. The odds will change mainly because we don’t know what the final field will be, but when we get a better idea of the type of horses that will be targeting the Ranvet Stakes, as well as their recent form, you will see the odds starting to take shape.
If you do choose to place bets in these early markets, it means you have the potential to find the favourite at odds of $10 or greater.

A small but very high quality field lined up to contest the 2022 Ranvet Stakes. The runner everyone had their eyes on was none other than last year’s winner Verry Elleegant, and the question of everyone’s lips was if she can back up and win the race two years in a row.
Verry Elleegant was listed at the very short price of $1.40 for the Ranvet Stakes, and it is easy to see why. With over $14 million in prizemoney, and a season record of 7:3-1-1, the 6YO also has a great record on a heavy track. She was also coming off a great win in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes in her previous start.
In the next line of better we find Montefilia, at $5.50. The mare had just come 7th (out of 10) in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (the race that Verry Elleegant won). The multiple Group 1 winner last win was at the Metropolitan Handicap (Group 1), and she has almost $2 million in prizemoney.
Third in line of the betting markets was Angel of Truth, at $8.00. Angel of Truth was another runner that had come out of the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes, and in that race he ended up finishing 3rd, behind Verry Elleegant and She’s Ideel.
Everyone was watching the favourite, Verry Elleegant, for this race as punters had backed her into very short odds of $1.40 before the race. Many were confident that she would go back-to-back after winning the race in 2021. However, it wasn’t to be for Verry Elleegant who was simply out classed on the day by Montefilia, who was on the second line of betting.
Montefilia had put together a fantastic run, thanks to the work of jockey Jason Collett. It was basically all over by the 400m mark, when Montefilia was already in first place, and she ended up beating Verry Elleegant by 2L!
Verry Elleegant was in last place (in a very small field) at the 800m mark, and just had too much work to do in the last stages of the race. In 3rd place was Angel of Truth, who just so happened to finish 3rd in the race last year as well.
Despite finishing 3rd, it was certainly a distant 3rd, as he finished a whopping 7.68L off the leader. Angel of Truth was 2nd at the 400m mark, but just simply got swallowed up by Verry Elleegant and Montefilia, who were battling it out for the top 2 positions.
